Moving Forward Lasell College 



Dear Lasell Alumni and Friends: 

This issue of Leaves — in a new, reader- friendly magazine format — includes, for the first time, 
the College's annual Report On The Year. We think a review of the remarkable progress made over 
the past fiscal year is worth sharing with all of you, our most loyal supporters, just as a look at 
what's happening on campus today and in the future is inspiring. 

All of the constituents of the College — faculty, staff, parents, students, alumni, Trustees, Overseers, 
friends and donors — have contributed to the momentum that continues to propel Lasell to new 
heights, as evidenced by our being cited for the second consecutive year by The Chronicle of 
Higher Education as one of the "Great Colleges to Work For," and by being named one of the 
top 1 "Great Colleges for a Great Price" in the North region by US News and World Report. 

The advances we are making in executing the Strategic Plan put in place three years ago 
are significant: We can point to another year of record enrollments, with 1,600 full-time 
undergraduates, an 1 1% increase this year in the size of the full-time faculty (see pages 12-13), 
new undergraduate programs in Fashion Communication and Applied Mathematics, three graduate 
degree programs that did not exist last year at this time (see page 16), an up tick in the percentage 
of male undergraduates to nearly 35%, an increase in minorities in the student body to nearly 18% 
and the rising before our eyes of the Donahue Center for Creative and Applied Arts (see pages 4-5). 

In addition, some 40 students will participate in international service learning programs this year, 
including a new trip to the Amazonian jungles of Brazil; another 20 are slated for academically 
oriented trips to France or China, and as many as 80 will take a semester to study abroad. 

Also in these pages, you will read about some of the remarkable individuals whose passion for 
education reinforces the College's mission. Professors such as sociologist Tessa Le Roux (page 15), 
whose global sensibilities enrich and expand the classroom experience for her students; behind-the- 
scenes staffers who keep the robust Lasell machine humming, such as information technologist 
Jane Wan (page 16); and welcome additions to our team of administrative professionals, such as 
the Rev. Dr. Thomas Sullivan, director of the Center for Spiritual Life (page 19). 

Your philanthropy, your energy and your support are having a significant impact on everyone who 
is part of the Lasell family. We thank you for what you have done, for what you are doing and for 
what you will do in the future. It couldn't happen without you. 



Sincerely, 



£ucW-~T

THE ARTS IN BLOOM 



Take one successful visual artist with 
experience building college art programs, 
add a young, cutting-edge art professor, mix 
with a talented painter and a graphic design 
whiz — both with loads of teaching experience 
at Lasell — and you get the College's new Art 
and Graphic Design Department. 



As the idea of expanding the arts at Lasell has 
crystalized in recent years, several new faces 
have joined the faculty to help bring that plan 
to fruition. 

This fall, Serdar Arat came on board as the 
Diane Heath Beever '49 Professor of Art and 
Kenneth Calhoun arrived as the chair of the 
newly formed Art and Graphic Design 
Department. They, along with Professors Margo 
Lemieux and Stephen Fisher, promise to have a 
marked impact on visual and graphic arts study. 

"Big changes are underway related to arts 
education at Lasell. Tops on the list is a new 
arts major," Calhoun tells Leaves (see page 12). 

Calhoun adds that one possibility, which 
has been under development by Lemieux, 
would train students for the business side 
of gallery management. 

This is an exciting prospect for Arat (see 
page 12) who managed and developed the 
art gallery at Concordia College in New York 
and regularly shows his work in galleries in 
Manhattan and in Istanbul and Ankara, Turkey. 

"For all visual arts on campus, the gallery, in my 
mind, is the anchor. It is the key place, and also 
brings in the local community interest," says 
Arat, who hopes to lead a future course called 
Art, Gallery and Museum. 




The Fantastic Four: (L to R) Serdar Arat, Kenneth Calhoun, 
Stephen Fisher and Margo Lemieux. 



Arat says the course could have students 
spending time inside museums and galleries 
to experience the business side of gallery 
management. 

In the future, Calhoun also would like to offer 
a studio art major and hopes he and Fisher can 
look into new graphics courses in 3D animation, 
games, motion graphics and special effects. 

"The classroom work needs to be tightly 
fitted and responsive to what is happening 
in the real world," says Calhoun. 

With an entire department devoted to the visual 
arts, suddenly new energy and ideas about arts 
courses and graphic design are sprouting. 

This new department, alongside the current 
construction of the Donahue Center for Creative 
and Applied Arts, adds a heaping dose of 
momentum to the rebuilding of the arts on the 
Lasell campus.

Breaking New Ground, 
Expanding the Arts 



Members of the Lasell community gathered in June for the 
ceremonial groundbreaking for the Donahue Center for 
Creative and Applied Arts, which will house state-of-the-art 
classrooms, faculty offices and will become the permanent 
home for the Lasell Fashion Collection. The building is named 
for Lasell alumna Nancy Lawson Donahue '49, trustee emerita, who, 
along with her husband Richard, gave the lead gift for the creation of 
the new building. The new art center is part of Lasell's Bridge to the 
Future fundraising initiative. 

In attendance at the groundbreaking were President Michael 
B. Alexander and his wife, Mary Barbara Alexander, members of the 
Donahue family, members of the Board of Trustees, local dignitaries 
including State Representative Kay Khan, Yolanda Cellucci, honorary 
co-chair of the College's Bridge to the Future fundraising initiative, 
members of Lasell's administrative team, Lasell staff and representatives 
from the architectural, contracting and finance firms for the building. 

Donahue, who is co-chair for the fundraising initiative, and her family 
have been major supporters of the College over the years, providing 
funding for the Donahue Institute for Values and Public Life and the 
Donahue Bookstore. 

The Donahue Center for Creative and Applied Arts is scheduled for 
completion in the summer of 201 1 . 



Digging In: President Michael B. Alexander, State Representative Kay Khan, Nancy Lawson 
Donahue '49 (center), Yolanda Cellucci and RoseMary Fuss, vice chair of the Lasell Board of 
Trustees, break ground for the new Donahue Center for Creative and Applied Arts. 





Solo Show: Serdar Arat in NYC. 

The arrival of Serdar Arat, Diane Heath 
Beever '49 Professor of Art, at Lasell this 
fall has already raised the profile of the 
visual arts on and off campus. 

Arat, born in Turkey, has lived and studied 
in the US since graduate school. He had 
a solo show of his work at Kouros Gallery 
in Manhattan in October with another 
exhibition slated later this year at Galeri Nev 
in Ankara, Turkey. Keep your eyes open in 
Auburndale, however; Arat hopes to also 
have his work on the walls of Lasell's 
Wedeman Gallery soon. 

Leaves recently caught up with the artist who 
shares some thoughts below: 

On his NYC exhibition: "This is my fourth 
solo show in New York. Shadow of the Island 
is the title of a specific painting but also the 
title of the series of a dozen paintings. 
Originally it goes back to a series called Island 
of the Dead by Swiss artist Arnold Bbcklin 
(1827-1901). I previously did an homage to 
that body of work called Island of the Dead 
and now, as an extension of that, I created 
Shadow of the Island. Most of my work is 
metaphorical. Part of the sky and water will 
come together and be joined, but they look 
jolted out of place and shifted. They are in 
balance somehow, but it is a little uneasy." 

On art in general: "Susan Sontag once said, 
'The more personal it is, the more universal it 
becomes.' That resonated with me. I don't 
make art for social purpose; I go deeper and 
deeper into my own experience. If there is 
truth in that experience, then anyone can 
appreciate it." 

On his art: "The most distinct characteristic 
is shaped canvases. It looks abstract — but I 
think all art is based on nature. Really, it is 
the only experience we have. My work does 
evoke a natural setting but it is distilled, 
abstracted to emphasize different moods and 
states of mind. I try to edit out what isn't 
necessary and emphasize the emotional. " 5 




East Side, West Side 

Donahue in her element.

Mary Ann Donahue '53 



oh mwrn 

From the Control Room to the Cape 



During childhood summers, Mary Ann 
Donahue '53 and her family would 
drive through Auburndale from their 
Arlington, MA home en route to Cape 
Cod. "The Lasell campus looked so 
special," she recalls. "I could only 
fantasize that someday I might go 
there myself." 

Slow dissolve to two "wonderful" years as a 
Lasell undergraduate, where Donahue sang at 
Symphony Hall with the Orphean Club and, in 
general, had "a very happy, productive time." 
Her Lasell education landed her a job as a 
medical secretary, but her extracurricular energy 
was spent pursuing a passion for the performing 
arts. Next stop, Boston University for a BFA 
cum laude in Theatre Arts and an MFA in 
Theatre Education. "The rest," she tells Leaves, 
"is history." 

That history includes a very full, Manhattan- 
based life as a Broadway and TV producer/writer, 
a place of prominence in the PBS universe and 
a continuing career as a consultant and 
producer/writer for promotional productions 
and between-program continuity efforts for 
WNET/Thirteen in New York, KCET in Los 
Angeles and other public broadcasting outlets. 



(If you've enjoyed The New Affluence with 
Jonathan Pond on TV this past year, you've seen 
Donahue's handiwork; and stay tuned for Vine 
Talk, an upcoming PBS celebrity wine-tasting 
series, for which she is coordinating producer.) 

Donahue has written scripts for All My Children 
on ABC, was a production assistant to Allen 
Funt on Candid Camera, helped launch Charlie 
Rose nationally on PBS, spent five years working 
in Spain on American films (including Patton 
and If It's Tuesday, This Must Be Belgium) and 
put time in behind the scenes on Broadway 
musicals with Lucille Ball (Wildcat), George 
Goebel (Let It Ride) and Patty Duke (Isle 
of Children). 

An inveterate traveler, Donahue divides her 
time these days primarily between Manhattan's 
East Side and the Wareham cottage her 
grandparents bought just before the Hurricane 
of 1938. "The Cape is a perfect antidote for the 
never-ending stimuli of living in New York," she 
says, "and vice versa." 

Like so many Lasell alums, Donahue is excited 
about the College's renewed emphasis on the 
arts and performance (see pages 4-5). And she's 
been a generous supporter of her alma mater. 
"I had a great experience at Lasell, had excellent 
teachers and made good friends," she tells 
Leaves. "Giving something back now is 
only appropriate."

Ever wonder just how many proud 
Lasell alums actually work on campus? 
Leaves did, and we decided to count 
heads. The grand total: 32! On a sultry 
summer day, 11 of their number posed 
for a photo at Lasell's Stoller Boat 
House (the other 21 were either 
vacationing or otherwise unavailable). 
The range of College departments 
that can claim Lasell alums on staff 
is as impressive as the diverse scope 
of their individual talents.

First- Year Seminars 



People, Politics, Pasta! 



The 'Witch' in History and Pop Culture? Video Games? 
Relationships that Hurt, Heal and Help? 
Exploring Superheroes? Italian Food, Film and Culture? 
The Art of Political Protest? 



Not your father's college course listing, perhaps, but 
a roster of First- Year Seminars that speaks clearly to 
Lasell's Class of 2014. 

This fall, for the first time, Lasell's popular First- Year 
Seminars (FYS) are required, three-credit courses, 
part of the College's Core Curriculum. During June 
orientation, students select a Seminar as one of their 
first-semester classes; similarly, each FYS professor 
has chosen a topic that he or she is passionate about 
but may not typically have the chance to teach. 

"The small FYS class size (16) allows new students to 
get to know each other, their peer mentors and, most 
importantly, a faculty member quite well," Helena 
Santos, Lasell's dean of Advising and First- Year 
Programs, tells Leaves. 

The list of FYS choices represents the diverse spectrum 
of academic interests and expertise that define Lasell, 
she adds. "The overarching goal is to support students' 
transition into our college community as independent, 
successful young adults responsible for their own 
personal and intellectual growth."

sell faculty members are bringing as much 
enthusiasm to their Seminars of choice as students. 

Dennis Frey, associate professor of History and chair 
of the Department of Humanities, explains his 
International Studies Seminar takes an historical 
approach to looking at the American cultural 
landscape "from within and without," with a special 
emphasis on Lasell students "who have left their 
homelands to attend our American college." 



Hortense Gerardo, assistant professor o. 
Anthropology and Performing Arts, thinks it make: 
sense for her Custom, Costume and Culture Semin 
to pair student interest in fashion with her 
expertise in cultural anthropology "and approach 
human behavior about physical attractiveness fron 
a cross-cultural, ethnographic perspective." 



Assistant Professor of Journalism Marie Campagna 
Franklin describes herself as "an Italian American 
who is passionate about all things Italian" and 
hopes to share that ardor with her Seminar in 
Italian Food, Film and Culture.

Lasell College continues to make local, regional and national news. 
Recent media appearances include: 




Donald Winslow, Lasell's late, beloved historian, 
trustee, son of former Lasell President Guy Winslow 
and author of Lasell: A History of the First Junior 
College for Women, was the focus of a Boston Globe 
feature article the day before a September 25 campus 
memorial service for him at the Yamawaki Arts and 
Cultural Center (see page 1 8). 

In Summer 2010, Assistant Professor of 
Communication Marie Franklin signed on as 
a columnist with the weekly Newton TAB, where 
she contributes op-ed commentaries. 

In September 2010, U.S. News and World Report 
named Lasell College one of the "Best Colleges for 
201 1 ." Lasell was ranked ninth for "Great Colleges 
for a Great Price" and tied for 25th for "Regional 
Colleges-North." 

Nara Paz '09 was profiled in the Boston Sunday Globe 
Magazine in August 2010 about her rising profile as a 
fashion designer. 

The Daily News Tribune covered an August 201 
visit by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick to 
Lasell Village, where he signed the Silver Alert 
System legislation into law. The Silver Alert System 
functions like the Amber Alert System to locate 
elderly people with Alzheimer's disease who go 
missing. 



THE CHRONICLE 



• In July 2010, Lasell was 
recognized in The Chronicle of 
Higher Education as one of the 
"Great Colleges to Work For 
2010." The College was cited 
for its Professional/Career- 
Development Programs, Teaching Environment 
and Supervisor/Department-Chair Programs. 
The Newton TAB also picked up the story.

Tessa Le Roux 

Lights the Fire' 

Sociology Professor Tessa Le Roux, director of the Donahue 
Institute for Values and Public Life and director of 
International Programs, relocated to the United States from 
her native South Africa in 1997. Le Roux, whose main 
scholarly work is in the field of gender and family studies, is 
widely published in the areas of gender role socialization, 
domestic work and migration and family ideology Le Roux's 
lifelong passion for teaching, she says, "allows me to light 
the fire of social justice in the classroom and beyond." Leaves 
caught up with the busy academic over the summer, before 
her travels to Scandinavia. 



• Social justice has always been 
critical to your worldview. How 
does your work as a Lasell educator 
help meet this important priority in 
your life? In the classroom I can help 
students develop an understanding of 
society and their own lives as social 
agents. The Donahue Institute 
represents sociology in action — it aims 
to raise awareness of social issues and 
to encourage activism. Our annual 
Donahue Distinguished Scholars 
(luminaries like the late historian 
Howard Zinn and journalist Liz Walker) 
challenge us to think critically about the 
world and reflect on powerful issues 
like immigration, race and sexuality. 

• Your primary scholarly work is 
in the field of gender and family 
studies. What drew you to this? 

In South Africa the apartheid system 
separated families, and migration had a 
huge impact on women's lives. I remain 
interested in the irony that women 
often feel compelled to leave their 
children behind in order to provide a 
better life for their families. 

• Why is Lasell such a good 
professional fit for you? At a small 
institution like Lasell, it is possible to 
wear more than one hat without 
getting weighed down by bureaucracy. 



"The Lasell community 
has supported me when 
I most needed it, 
providing me with the 
space to pursue my own 
academic interests. " 




Tessa Le Roux: A passion for teaching. 



• What books are currently on 
your night table? Too many and 

too little time! The Immortal Life of 
Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot, 
Strength in What Remains by Tracy 
Kidder, Island Beneath the Sea by 
Isabelle Allende and Made for 
Goodness by Desmond Tutu. I keep 
returning, in my reading and 
academic work, to the immigrant 
experience. In the meantime, the 
New Yorkers and New York Times 
Book Reviews are piling up. 

• Deserted island films? My 

favorites tend to be haunting, often 
sad and deal with people making 
sense of unfortunate circumstances. 
Babette's Feast, II Postino, Wit and 
Yesterday come to mind. 



• Other passions? The outdoors — 
hiking, backpacking, camping, 
gardening. Sitting on the rocks 
watching the ocean is where I feel 
most at peace. I dream of retiring to a 
cottage in the woods. 

• Why have you chosen to be a 
"Friend" of the Lasell Fund? In an 

ideal world, money would not play 
a role in education; the opportunity 
should be available to all. Given 
today's financial realities, though, 
I feel it's important for everyone who 
benefits from Lasell's mission, as I do, 
to support the College.

LASELL GRAD PROGRAMS on Fast Track 

Starting in January 201 1, Lasell College will offer two new master of education degrees 
in Elementary Education and in Moderate Disabilities. The two new degrees are the latest 
additions to a growing graduate program at Lasell that now includes a master's degree in 
Sport Management, a master's in Communication and a master's degree in Management. 



"The expansion and diversification of offerings at the 
graduate level is central to the growth of the College," 
says James Ostrow, vice-president for Academic Affairs 
for Lasell. "This new degree is significant in that it 
both serves this cause as well as provides new 
opportunities for enriching the quality of our teacher 
education programming." 

According to Joan Dolamore, dean of Graduate and 
Professional Studies, a special graduate workshop for 
teachers entering the education master's program is in 
the works for the summer 201 1, as well. "We are 
thrilled to offer these new degrees and to explore 
other additions to the graduate offerings," Dolamore 
tells Leaves. 



Second Life 



_ 



Among the possible additions is a "fast-track" master's 
in Management, where students can finish a graduate 
program completely online in 18 months. The College 
hopes to launch this program in September 201 1 . 

Two new concentrations to existing master's degrees are 
also planned in Management: Health Care Management 
and Entrepreneurship. And in Communication: Health 
Communication and Intercultural Communication. 

Other areas of expansion may include a master's in Fashion 
and another in Strength and Conditioning. 

Beyond this, the College is building on existing partnerships 
and seeking to partner with community colleges, non-profit 
organizations and corporations to meet the education 
needs of their diverse constituent groups.

Jane Wan: From ER to IT 




During her 25-year nursing career, Newton native Jane Bloomingburg Wan never imagined 
herself a techie. That is, until 2006, when she landed in Lasell's Information Technology 
department. From her Brennan Library ground-floor nook, the College's IT services manager fields 
questions, problems and requests from students, faculty and staff — a full plate by any measure, 
but a far cry from the trauma of hospital triage. Like many interesting professionals on the Lasell 
campus, Wan began her "first" life in a field unrelated to her current post. "Although they may 
appear quite different," she says, "my nursing and IT careers have similarities that I value. Both 
have challenged me to understand how to adapt the rather rigid rules of technology and 
protocols to the flexible needs of individuals." 

While "the knack for the technical as well as the nurturing aspects of nursing was always 
there," she adds, "I was becoming disheartened at the business-like direction the health 
care field was heading." 

Wan left the profession 13 years ago, when she and her husband, Nick, adopted a daughter, Lulu, from China to 
join their family (which includes 1 9-year-old Katie, a Lasell College freshman, and three rescue dogs). "Once I was 
home with Lulu, I got involved with the PTO at Katie's school and then at the local level," Wan continues. "I trained 
myself on simple computer skills, found I really enjoyed it and continued trying to solve issues on my own." 

When not responding to the evolving technical needs of the Lasell community, Wan sings with the Lasell Jazz 
Ensemble, volunteers in animal rescue work and enjoys boating. As for being one of Lasell's go-to techies? "I find it 
refreshing to work with students," she says. "Their enthusiasm and curiosity for life and learning are energizing."

Village Voice 



Mnne Wangh 

H ^Doyenne 
Still On Point 



Anne Wilson Wangh may well be the only Lasell 
Village resident to have danced in a high-kick line 
at the 1939 New York World's Fair. 

The 92-year-old former ballerina and doyenne of the 
international dance community has strong opinions about 
life and art (she once called the legendary Vaslav Nijinsky 
"a genius and schizophrenic" in print) and finds the Village 
a perfect place to cultivate her sensibilities. 

"Lasell Village offers residents a continuing intellectual 
challenge," Wangh tells Leaves. "The common 
denominator? We have varied life experiences to 
share and are still expanding our minds." 

Wangh, the daughter of a New Jersey dentist and artist 
mother who became a block-print textile pioneer in New 
York's ready-to-wear industry, was weaned on the arts 
"with New York as my mecca from the time my mother 
saw Pavlova perform," she says.

A classically-trained ballerina and 
trailblazer in modern dance and 
movement therapy/education who 
still returns to Manhattan periodically 
"for my dance fix," the University of 
Chicago alumna and onetime union 
organizer for AGVA (the American 
Guild of Variety Artists) was off stage 
for 1 4 years — raising three sons with 
her psychoanalyst husband on New 
York's vibrant Upper West Side. 

She returned to the stage in 1956, 
went on to help establish the Dance 
Library of Israel ("I once performed at 
21 kibbutzim in 28 days") and 
managed to amass a remarkable

Where The Classroom Is The Real World 



Remembering Donald J. Winslow: Keeper of History 



December 21, 1911 - July 10, 2010 



Lasell College said farewell to its 
beloved historian, former trustee 
and dear friend Don Winslow this 
summer and gathered for a formal 
memorial service, hosted by his 
wife Charlotte, on September 25, 
2010 at the Yamawaki Arts and 
Cultural Center. 

The longtime professor and chair 
of the Boston University English 
Department was also in many ways 
the keeper of Lasell's history. 
Winslow was a fixture on campus 
as a child — born in Karandon 
House when his father, Guy 
Winslow, was president — and 
eagerly shared his vivid memories 
of those early days. He never 
strayed too far from Lasell and 
entertained many from the 
College at his Maple Street home. 

Here are some memories of 
Winslow gathered by Leaves: 






Through the Years: Don Winslow in his office, with wife Charlotte and as a child at Lasell. 



Thomas de Witt, president emeritus of Lasell: 

"During my presidency, so focused on change, Don provided perspective and 
institutional memory — the English professor reminding the former historian 
that progress at Lasell also reguired a celebration of its unigue past. Even in his 
declining years, his home was always open to a steady stream of students and 
faculty eager for his stories about Lasell's fascinating history. " 

Marilyn Negip, friend and librarian at Lasell: 

"Some of my favorite memories of Don are the stories he 
told of his time in Dorset, England where, as a Thomas 
Hardy scholar, he hopped on his bicycle to knock on the 
door of Hardy's sister, Kate. " 

Geoffrey Austrian, friend and neighbor: 

Austrian remembers Don's love of The Times Literary Supplement and how 
everyone in the neighborhood knew his of affection for the publication. "The 
Auburndale postmaster would sometimes personally deliver the London-based 
journal, when it came after regular delivery, to [Don's] house, knowing how 
important it was to him. "

Judith Wittenberg, former graduate student 
and Lasell trustee: 

"I was always so touched by how guickly and 
enthusiastically he would respond to my questions. 
He kept all his gradebooks from his courses. He 
was always so committed to his students and 
to scholarship. " 



Ann Silverstein, friend and Lasell Village resident: 

Silverstein met Winslow by chance during a winter walk on 
campus 10 years ago and recalls "he was always reading 
and never ran out of things to say. His mind was as clear 
as a bell. "

Centered: Sullivan in his Edwards Student Center digs. 

So, it's no surprise that a recent 
conversation revealed his big Red Sox 
secret — which may make him even 
more charming in the eyes of 
Lasell Nation. 

You see, Sullivan was the minister 
who married Red Sox owner John 
Henry and Linda Pizzuti in 2009. 

"All my pals said 'Do it,'" says the 

initially hesitant Sullivan. "We held the 

pre-marital 

counseling on 

[Henry's] 

yacht." 



Rev. Dr. Thomas P. Sullivan 



Open Doors 
Open Arms 



Friendly, disarming, conversational, Lasell's 
new director of the Center for Spiritual Life 
Rev. Dr. Thomas P. Sullivan not only has the spiritual 
and academic credentials to guide and counsel 
students, he's also extremely easy to talk to. 



Top ) Reasons 

*- / to see Tom 



"I knew I liked a smaller 
school, and the breadth of 
students at Lasell was 



what I was looking for." 



But as exciting 

as it was to 

hob-nob with 

the rich and 

famous, Sullivan is more at home on 

a college campus connecting with 

students and staff. 

At Babson College, Sullivan became 
interested in business ethics and 
designed a spiritual program from 
scratch. More recently, he created 
a similar program for Roger 
Williams University. 



And when the chance came to bring 
his skills and experience to Lasell, 
Sullivan felt it was right. 

Instead of reinventing the wheel, 
Sullivan, a Presbyterian minister, 
plans to partner with local houses 
of worship to offer students 
connections to members of their 
own faith groups. He also hopes to 
continue the Dessert and Discussion 
meetings that former Director 
Barbara Asinger began 
and try out a few new 
programs, as well. Beyond 
this, Sullivan will teach 
several classes from World 
Religions to Applied 
Business Ethics and is 
interested in creating new 
service learning trips. 

Sullivan, who has previously led 
student trips to African nations, 
believes that Lasell's academic 
disciplines would fit well with an 
expanded international experience. 

In the interim, though, the avid 
soccer fan and singer plans to "be 
noticeable" on campus and leave his 
office door wide open to visitors. 



1. You are in crisis and need help. 

2. You need a sounding board 
who isn't a guidance counselor. 

3. You want to speak with a man, 
(if other counselors are women). 

4. You need to talk about an 
assignment (but really want to 
discuss your girlfriend/boyfriend). 

5. You want to talk about the 
World Cup with a fellow 
soccer enthusiast.

New Coaches Bring; New Energy to Athletics 




Carla Flaherty 



A new era for the 
Lasell College 
women's basketbal 
team begins this 
fall/winter season 
as Carla Flaherty 
starts in her new post as Head 
Women's Basketball Coach and 
Athletic Administrator. 



The women's basketball program will 
be built around Flaherty's philosophy of 
"recruiting, scouting and overall 
commitment to scholar athletes." 

Flaherty is excited and optimistic about 
the upcoming season and says, "The 
basketball court here at Lasell is 94-feet 
long and the rims are 10-feet high. 
This is the same as any other gym in 
the nation. In order to build a winning 
program we need to celebrate what 
we have. As far as I'm concerned, 
Lasell offers everything anyone could 
want or hope for. It is my intention to 
share that philosophy with as many 
prospective students as possible." 

Before coming to Lasell, Flaherty was 
an assistant coach at Bates College, her 
alma mater, where she helped the 
team to a 104-53 record. As a student 
at Bates, Flaherty ranks eighth all-time 
in women's basketball scoring with 
1,143 career points. She also received 
a graduate degree from Southern New 
Hampshire University in 2010.

Off and Running 



Sophomore Patrick Slight is on a Roll 




Patrick Slight is the 

guy who — with no 
reservations — will tell 
you he dreams of 
being Boomer, the 
Lasell College mascot. 



The problem is, Slight wouldn't 
have the time to do it. 

Between being president of the 
Class of 201 3, a peer mentor for 
a First- Year Seminar, a resident 
assistant in Rockwell Hall, a tour 
guide for the Admissions office, 
an orientation leader and a Cross 
Country record breaker — where 
would he find the time? 

"It makes me happy to be here. 
I have been myself since I 
walked on this campus 
freshman year. I have a lot of 
pride wearing the school 
uniform colors and being class 
president," Slight says, his 
love for Lasell palpable. 

And, unbelievably, the Franklin, 
MA native almost didn't wind up 
in Auburndale. 

Slight is the student who knew in 
7th grade he wanted to be a 
businessman and entrepreneur. 
He still holds onto his initial idea 
to create a community sports 
complex in the suburbs akin to 
the Reggie Lewis Center in 
Boston. He admits he had his 
career all planned out. Babson, 
with a strong business 
entrepreneurship program, was 




On a Roll: The record-breaker kicks it in. 

his first choice for college and he was 
accepted. It was in the bag until... he 
visited Lasell. 

"I came to recruitment night [for Cross 
Country] at Lasell, and everyone was so 
nice and welcoming. I left that next day 
and knew I was in trouble with the 
decision I thought I had already made," 
Slight tells Leaves. 



He had the courage to question 
his assumptions and then change 
his mind. He arrived last year with 
guns blazing, and he's never 
looked back. 

Recruited for his speed on a 
Cross Country course, Slight has 
not disappointed. 

Last year as a freshman he broke 
Lasell's 1,000-meter record and 
the 4x8 distance medley record 
with other members of the Cross 
Country team. 

"It's a competition with yourself," 
explains Slight, who was 
nicknamed "Chainsaw" during 
his successful high school 
running career. 

Slight, who thrives on his internal 
drive and creativity, gained the 
moniker during a particularly 
important race as a senior. 

During the last 200 meters of 
that race, his coach yelled that 
he needed to beat 14 runners 
for the team to advance to the 
state championships. So, Slight 
kicked it in. 

"There is nothing that compares 
to when the gun goes off and 
everything just disappears," 
he says. 

If Slight's next three years are 
anything like his first, no doubt 
more records will be broken.

Joan WeilerArnow '49 

'An Enriching and Benevolent Life' 





Joan Weiler Arnow 

December 17, 1929 - June 29, 2010 



"Joan and Bob are pillars on 
which the success of Lasell 
rests," says President Michael 
B. Alexander. "With all of 
their achievements 
throughout the years," 
he adds, "they remained 
remarkably modest. Joan 
translated her beliefs into 
action and leaves a deep 
imprint on her alma mater. 
We are all challenged to carry 
on that legacy of compassion 
and generosity." 



When Joan Marianne "Jackie" Weiler was a 
Chandler girl at Lasell in the late 1 940s, she met 
a Massachusetts College of Pharmacy student 
named Robert Arnow who wooed her with 
"corned beef sandwiches left on the Chandler 
porch after lights out." The couple soon married and, over the next 
six decades, forged a life of devotion to Jewish cultural and civic 
ideals, to the arts, to Israel, to touching the lives of thousands of 
less fortunate. . .and to Lasell College. 

With the death of Joan WeilerArnow '49 in June 2010, the College 
lost one of its most steadfast and distinguished supporters. 

"Hers was an enriching and benevolent life," recalls Lasell 
President Emeritus Thomas de Witt, who enjoyed a long friendship 
with the Arnows during his presidency. "Joan was an elegant, 
gracious and goodhearted person who partnered with her husband, 
Bob, to have a profound impact on Lasell' s present and future," 
he continues. "One of the hallmarks of their philanthropy was 
its quiet, unassuming nature. Their recipe for making a 
philanthropic difference blended vision, commitment and 
constancy of generosity." 

Imbued with a strong family tradition of giving back, Joan Arnow 
indeed forged a philanthropic path with personal meaning. Early 
on, she recognized the value of public service programs with 
financial support for the College's Center for Community-Based 
Learning. She became a trustee of the College, and her husband 
was an overseer and member of the Lasell Village board. 

The couple established Lasell' s first endowed academic 
chair, the Joan Weiler Arnow '49 Professorship 
(now held by biology Professor Stephen Sarikas) to 
recognize the value of dedicated faculty, and served 
as honorary co-chairs of the Lasell 150 Campaign. 
At her 50th Lasell reunion in 1999, Joan Arnow 
received the 1999 Lasell Medallion. 

In addition to her husband of 6 1 years, Arnow leaves four 
children: David, Peter and Joshua Arnow and Ruth Arnow 
Stahl '80; a brother, Alan Weiler; 18 grandchildren and 
four great-grandchildren.

It could well be Antonio Nesbitt '13, 

one of Lasell's ace Phonathoners who is 
skilled (and successful) at asking alums 
to contribute to the all-important Lasell 
Fund. In addition to his Phonathon 
responsibilities, Nesbitt is a student 
orientation leader, intramural athlete 
(especially rugby) and, it is commonly 
held, all-around good guy. Here's a 
bit more about the personable West 
Hall sophomore... who just might 
have your number. 



Shirley Richman Miller was delighted 
with all aspects of Reunion 2010 
including her stay in a Lasell residence 
hall on Friday and Saturday nights. 
Other classmates who braved the 
weekend in the residence hall were 
Anita Angelus Koulopoulos, Chris 
Oliveto Davis and Jackie Paulding

Favorite thing about Phonathon: 

Chatting with alums of all ages helps me 
appreciate how connected so many people 
feel to the College. It's very cool.

Twenty-eight 1960s alums returned to 
Auburndale to celebrate their 50th 
reunion in May. For those of you who 
did not attend, Cricket Bigelow 
George has this to say: "Yes, we have 
all gone on to other things in our lives, 
but Lasell was our first step. Have you 
had as many belly laughs as you did 
back then? Have you had anyone with 
whom you shared as many secrets? 
Have you had a meal as memorable as 
those at Jack and Marion's or as bad as 



those open-faced tomato and cheese 
sandwiches in the campus dining hall? 
Do you remember the rule about how 
freezing it had to be to wear pants to 
class when you trudged through the 
snow on a cold morning? It's amazing 
how young you can feel when you're 
back on campus, comparing memories 
with friends from those days. It may be 
50 years since we were at Lasell, but it 
seems like just a few days once you 
identify that 'older' woman who sat 
next to you in English. Those of us who 
came back had a ball as we became 
18 once more." 

Faith Bowker-Maloney says, "I 
recently took my oldest granddaughter 
to Highpoint University in North 
Carolina. Two others are off to high 
school and one to middle school. 
I will be free again until the afternoons 
when the three are home again and 
homework time begins! " 

Since 2005, Barbara Jacoby Adelstein 

has been living in Massachusetts to be

On the first day, I met three Lasell 
alums who were walking in honor of 
one of their mothers, a breast cancer 
survivor. We all had lunch on the Lasell 
athletic field. On the second day, I met 
up with Liz Kasa '03 who had waited 
two hours at a cheering station to see 
me. The three days of walking were

LASELL MEDALLION: CALL FOR NOMINATIONS 

The tradition of the Lasell Medallion was established in 1 968 by then-president 
Dr. Vincent DeBaun. The Medallion was created to honor outstanding members of 
the College community. The bronze Medallion award "may be made to any member 
of the Lasell family who, by virtue of distinguished service to the College or to society 
at large, has brought added honor to the name of Lasell." The 2010 Lasell Medallion 
recipients were Joan Conradi McLaughlin '59 and Nancy Burrows Putnam '50. 






To nominate someone for the 2011 Medallion, to be presented at the 
Reunion Convocation on Saturday, June 4, 2011, contact Director of Alumni 
Relations C. Chad Argotsinger at cargotsinger@lasell.edu or 617-243-2139.

The Scoop from 
Lasell Alums 

Looking for the perfect 
gift for this holiday season? 
Leaves thought it would be fun to 
ask some talented and enterprising alums 
about their 2010 holiday faves 
(and get student illustrator 
Kristin Liberacki '11 to 
create some whimsical 
graphics). Enjoy! 



Headbands: Miraculous Decoy 

Headbands are everywhere! I consider them a genre of hair extensions, though 
more enhancing, colorful and comfortable. You can find a headband informal, 
plain or adorned with feathers, gems or flowers, at prices reasonable to extravagant. 

Michele Poirier Gorman '60, Educational Consultant, West Hartford, CT 




The Jersey Scarf: Cozy and Cool 

"This may be one of the most essential 
elements for the fall/winter season. It's a 
shield, yes, but it can also spruce up the most 
unfashionable men's outfit. Jersey scarves are 
really big right now with lots of texture; they 
are cozy and cool. " 

Christian DiPietro '10 
Design Assistant, 
Little Marc Jacobs 
New York, NY 




Snowboards: Take Flight 

"The new rocker-camber technology 
combines traditional camber shape 
with the spring-loaded rocker 
design and is found throughout 
the Burton line, for example, in the 
Custom Flying v"" snowboard with its 
crisp snap and added pop. " 

Amy Sundberg '04 

Buyer, Cadillac Mountain Sports 
Bar Harbor, ME 



Junior Director's Chair: Personal and Practical 

"When my son was born 28 years ago, I received an adorable 
junior director's chair with his name on it. It was lightweight, 
folded, doubled as a booster seat and always provided him with 
just the right size support for his little bottom. It's the perfect baby 
or young child gift and can be used until age four. "

Marguerite (Peggy) Boyd Greene '30 



A longtime member of The Heritage Society, Marguerite (Peggy) Boyd Greene '30 
died on May 24, 2010, just a few months short of her 100th birthday, in Delray 
Beach, Florida. For many years, Greene divided her time between her native 
Gloversville, NY and Delray Beach, and for the last several years she resided at Abbey 
Delray South in Delray Beach. "Mother was a fabulous lady with tremendous grace, 
style and wit which she exhibited right to the end," her daughter, Sarah Peck of 
Wellington, FL, tells Leaves. "She treasured her lifelong and close relationship with 
Lasell." Greene is also survived by a son, Douglas Green of Vancouver, Washington, 
as well as several grandchildren and great-grandchildren. A loyal and generous Lasell 
alumna, Greene was honored on her 90th birthday in 2000 with the naming of a 
staircase alcove in her former undergraduate residence, Gardner House.

Alumni Donors 

More than 2,000 alumni 
contributed to the success of 
Lasell College in 2009-2010. Gifts 
to the Lasell Fund (see page 39) 
provided the resources that enable 
our students and faculty to thrive in 
the classroom, on the playing field 
and in service to the community. 
Other gifts, including those to the 
Bridge to the Future Campaign 
(see page 43), helped strengthen 
Lasell's endowment and program 
support and make possible much- 
needed additional space for faculty 
and students, particularly within 
the creative and applied arts.

Bridge to the Future Fundraising Initiative 

Bridge to the Future is a three-year fundraising initiative launched in fiscal year 
2010 to provide for Lasell's facility and operating needs, which have resulted 
from the College's tremendous growth in recent years. Its three core objectives 
are to raise $5 million dollars to build the new Donahue Center for Creative 
and Applied Arts (below) and to support other current building projects 
underway; to raise $3 million dollars for Lasell's endowment (primarily through 
planned gifts); and to raise at least $2 million in gifts over the three-year period 
in support of the Lasell Fund. 

The following list includes those generous donors who have made special gifts 
and pledges, in addition to their Lasell Fund donations, in support of the Bridge 
to the Future Fundraising Initiative.

Remembering with Gratitude 








A large portion of our endowment growth has come through the generosity of these honored alumni 
and friends who made provisions for Lasell in their estate plans and through life-income gifts, which 
have now been received by the College. We are forever grateful to these cherished individuals whose 
legacies live on through our current and future students.

Lasell College Report On The Year: July 1 , 2009 - June 30, 201 



www.lasell.edu 



■ 



Red Sox Fanatic 
and Lasell Fan 

Lisa Simmons '80 




Year graduated: 1980. 

Major: Retail Management/Merchandising. 

Residence: Gardner House, third floor, 
both years! 

Current occupation: Small business owner — 
petsitting and dog walking. 

Dream job: As much as I would love to be a 
Fenway Park vendor, I actually would like to 
open my own yarn and knitting shop. 

Favorite Lasell memory: The proximity to the 
city while still being in the suburbs, and being 
able to take advantage of Boston's city life... 
museums, clubs and history. 

Why do you give back/stay involved with 
Lasell? When I returned for my 25th reunion, 
I realized that the years I spent at Lasell were 
where I did most of my growing as an individual 
Since then, I have become involved in Lasell 
activities and have regularly given back to 
the College. I would like to see more of my 
classmates join me at alumni events and 
our reunions. 



Leaves Fall 2010 



/.eaves is printed on paper featuring 
30% post-consumer waste with a 
total recycled content of 55%. 



M. A Lasell College Green 
^■^T Campus Initiative — 

Single-stream recycling allows 
students, faculty and staff to 
recycle most of their waste, all 
within one bin! In the first three 
months of single-stream recycling 
on campus, four tons of waste 
were saved from the landfill. 
You can help the Lasell College 
Green Campus Initiative by 
registering for Reunion Weekend 
201 1 online. Every step matters 
in reaching our goal, no matter 
how small!
